About the Sacraments

The Latin word sacramentum means "a sign of the sacred." The seven sacraments are moments when we encounter God's saving action in our lives.  They are sacred, significant and important mysteries of our Christian faith. In the sacraments, the invisible power of God's merciful love strengthens our lives through the visible signs of his providential care.

We want to facilitate your reception of the sacraments in any way we can.  More information about the preparation and requirements for each sacrament may be found on their related pages. Please e-mail Pat Denend at pdenend@bspwa.org or call her at (206) 732-7355 if you have additional questions.

To request a copy of your baptism certificate, a letter of good standing, or a letter permitting you to receive the sacraments elsewhere, please e-mail Pat Denend at pdenend@bspwa.org or call her at (206) 732-7355.
